Who thinks this Country could run on a Direct Democracy?
Mob rule will not work. Direct Democracy is nothing more then mob rule. It has never worked on a large scale and won't work now.
No one would have any rights or protections. Laws wouldn't work, Justice system would not work.
Lets get some of you Liberals that support this to admit it on this poll. Or admit you are just claiming to support it cause you think those malcontents will vote D.
We do have democrats pushing to remove our safeguards.
lol - yes; without the rule of law we are lost as a Nation.
I vote no because of the simple fact that under a direct democracy minorities are not protected.

Waiting for all the imbeciles who continually call for the elimination of the electoral college as a check/balance feature that ensures our branches of government are selected differently to ensure it is not just tyranny of the masses
51% rule over the other 49%. Our Constitution is not perfect, but it is pretty good. Many problems we face would not be here if we followed the rule of law from the start.
Yup if the federal govt kept to the confines on its power which the constitution placed on it our Constitutional Republic would be a lot better off today and some of our "social problems" wouldn't be there.
it should stay a Democratic Republic.....
though in a republic, it is a few, delegating decisions for all of us....and i am not really certain ''they'' deserve their jobs....or are up for the responsibility.
